Recently a friend and I spent 5 days at Maple Ki. We were warmly welcomed by Julianna and her mother Mary. Both are wonderful women who take great delight in sharing their lovely sanctuary on a small lake. Mary is everyone's idea of a grandmother and we so enjoyed interacting with her. Every morning we spent an hour and a half doing yoga under julianna's leadership. We found it great for all levels and she was very responsive to our requests. We both loved her excellent vegetarian food , although we are not vegetarians. Everything was prepared with fresh ingredients and with loving care. A canoe, kayaks and a number of well marked trails ensure the level of activity is great , should one choose. there is no pressurethough and relaxing with a book is just great too. we made some new friends and enjoyed the conversations with the other guests. I recommend Maple Ki for anyone seeking a little respite from their daily life.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A long, meandering driveway through 33 acres of mixed forest with over 1600 feet of private waterfront, brings you to our hide-away nestled amidst the sheltering trees on the shores of peaceful Cade Lake. Enjoy a refreshing swim; wading in from our sandy beach or diving off the dock. Direct access into the Salmon River offers canoeing and kayaking enthusiasts many picturesque miles of exploring nature's magic. Novice paddlers can take the canoe for a quiet glide on the calm lake; hear the haunting call of the loons and rest in the exquisite stillness. With only one other home on the lake, and no access for speedboats or Seadoos, you will experience the utmost in privacy and tranquility. ... more less
